17 years old build locally made drones

Age has no barrier to greatness, with determination and consistency, the sky is just the starting point.

David Opateyibo was 17 years old when he built with, locally-made drone in Lagos.

Opateyibo led a group of Lagos State Polytechnic understudies to deliver the country’s first model of a drone, which specialists in Lagos trust to convey for security surveillance.

Even in spite of the fact that Opateyibo was a student, he was one of the relate educates chosen to participate in building the primary aeroplane, STOL CH750 at Pinnacle Airplane Company’s facility in Missouri US and Mexico.

The aircraft is the primary of its kind within the nation built by five understudies – Opateyibo, Fausat Idowu, Aliyyah Adio, Michael Fakuade and Abdul-Hafeez Onisarotu.

When tested, Opateyibo’s drone could fly 15 minutes in the air with a maximum altitude of 2000 feet.

The drone is a high breed mix of existing drone components and locally fabricated material.

“Aside from using drones for aerial surveillance, you can also use them for aerial photography and videography, or for broadcasting, incidence control or pipeline and power line inspection.

You can also use drones in agriculture, to analyze farm produce,” Opateyibo said in an interview.

Known for his inventiveness when it comes to innovation, Opateyibo received his Applied Aviation Science certificate at the International College of Aeronautics, Ojodu-Berger, Lagos State.
